I won't bother to read the damn thing after reading you three have to say about it, but I did witness a life saved at a show once...been told here long ago, but: upperdeck, opposite stage at Winterland (I guess only one or two folks here know what I mean by experience?), in seats. Kid freaking out in behind us, making noise, running up and down toward balcony, which is a drop of 40 ft onto peeps below dancing and what not...Mrs Tell and I watch, transfixed as he runs past, far too fast to stop......

DH--no doubt you think this because Jimi did play it regularly during 68 & 69 (fr wiki): "Jimi Hendrix performed an instrumental version of "Sunshine of Your Love" as a setlist staple throughout his 1968 and 1969 concerts, employing wailing guitar riffs in place of the lyrics and ending the song by dramatically slowing the tempo to a grinding halt, as well as including leitmotifs from other Cream songs such as "Outside Woman Blues"......

Yes, I have to comment on your "clueless" description while hearing songs...I seem so much more knowledgeable "now", though everyone else (family/friends) would've said I was back then, too, right? At the time, I could hardly tell the instruments (who was playing which) apart, and I actually worked as a roadie for a DEAD cover band. I am much more musically astute now, and in part, this biased me against them "changing" because I could recognize any song off S&R, but not anything "new" (classi......
